"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11



Can you say "Yummy gift?" idea... I found the recipe below for Mocha Cocoa Mix on the Country Living website that looked perfect to make as little gifts!

I used my Nestability circle scallop dies with my Sizzix Big Shot for this gift. The image is from TayloredExpressions.com, the set is Season's Sweetings. The papers are Stampin' Up!'s Riding Hood Red cardstock and Ski Slope designer series paper. I used SU's Sticky Strip to adhere everything to the jar. I cut another scallop to put on the lid with the instructions for the cocoa.
